1572 Torres v. Local Union 594 Executive Board

Case No: 1572


It was error for the Local Executive Board to disqualify the charges under Article 31, §3(e), of the Constitution based on the conclusion that the evidence supporting the charges was hearsay. It is up to the trial committee to evaluate the evidence presented and determine its significance, relevance, and reliability. The IEB should review the Local Executive Board’s decision that the charges satisfied the criteria set forth in Article 31, §3(a) through (d), of the Constitution.
